Annie Murphy's top 5 love songs:

1. "The Very Thought of You" by Billie Holiday

"Her voice just takes my body and makes it one giant goosebump."

2. "Archie, Marry Me" by Alvvays

​"So, if you're feeling in love and like you want to sing loudly and with enthusiasm: Marry Me, Archie."

3. "Kathy's Song" by Simon & Garfunkel​

"This is one that I may or may not have looked out the window of a train at the world passing by and like, quietly sobbed to."

4. "Drunk in Love" by Beyoncé ft. JAY Z

"Listen to this song, run yourself a bubble bath and sing it to yourself if you're not in love with somebody. Just have that moment and be drunk in love with yourself.

5. "In Spite of Ourselves" by John Prine & Iris DeMent

"It's just two people doing their best and being themselves and being very deeply in love with each other despite all of their flaws."
